THE MINIONS OF MIDAS is a new Netflix thriller series from Spain (org. title Los Favoritos de Midas). The mini-series has six episodes and each one tends to end on a cliffhanger of some sort. Also, the cast has several familiar faces, so you should feel at home with this mini-series very fast.

In other words, you’ll probably binge-watch this Netflix production quite easily. This new Spanish Netflix series stars Luis Tosar, Willy Toledo, Marta Belmonte, Carlos Blanco, and Marta Milans. The main protagonist is Victor Genovés, who is portrayed by Luis Tosar. Most recently, we saw Luis Tosar star in the Netflix movie Eye for an Eye (2020).

While Luis Tosar has done many productions, for me, he will always be associated with his performance in Sleep Tight (org. title Mientras duermes) from 2011. It really is a brilliant little story that has been perfectly executed in this psychological horror movie directed by Jaume Balagueró and written by Alberto Marini. It was even remade in South Korea as Door Lock (2019).

Fans of the Netflix series White Lines (2020), which was sadly canceled after just one season, will also recognize Marta Milans. She is brilliant in The Minions of Midas as a very direct no-nonsense businesswoman, who is also an old friend of Victor’s. Also in a key role, we have Bea Segura who will be very familiar if you’ve watched the recent Shudder release 32 Malasana Street.

The mini-series was co-created and directed by Mateo Gil, who wrote the script together with Miguel Barros. The Minions of Midas is the first TV series written by Mateo Gil while Miguel Barros also wrote on the upcoming series Libertad (2020) and Gigantes (2018-2019).

However, if the name Mateo Gil rings a bell, it’s probably due to some other very successful movies. His feature film debut as a writer was Abre Los Ojos which was remade in the US with the title Vanilla Sky (2001). Also, he wrote The Sea Inside which won the Gilden Globe and Academy Award for “Best Foreign Language Film” in 2005.

Basically, what I’m getting at is the fact that the creator of The Minions of Midas knows how to tell a good story. I did feel that it became a tad too slow at times, but I also recognize that we need to get under the skin of both the characters and the world they live in. I was incredibly intrigued by the first episode and felt episode 2 was a bit weaker, but then it picked up again.

Do check out this Netflix mini-series if you enjoy a good crime thriller with an intelligent plot. As mentioned earlier, the original title is Los favorites de Midas, and you can watch a dubbed version. Still, I would (as always) recommend that you try it out in Spanish with subtitles first.

The Minions of Midas mini-series will be out on Netflix with all six episodes from November 13, 2020.
